Joomla for eLearning?
Cloud technology has finally reached an apex that has enabled rapid, easy and scalable integration. Cloud technology allows companies and organizations to work with multiple applications, and businesses, to collaborate and to work as one by using off-the-shelf integration API or Apps - even in the E-Learning market.
Integrating E-Learning for Business’ purposes
Businesses need training for a variety of reasons: Training keeps a workforce up to date and increase its performance, shares company knowledge through induction programs and training helps businesses meet legal and compliance requirements.
In this scenario, E-Learning is able to provide companies with more efficient training, by reducing overall training costs as well as providing a system that can continuously track users training and results. When “Learning” becomes “E-Learning” companies need affordable and reliable tools to deliver online training. That is, companies need a strait forward method to integrate with other business software already in use: such as web conferencing, HR software, Content Management System and so on.
How To Transform a CMS into a LMS
For a Content Management Systems (CMS) integration can be widespread, as each company owns an official website. By integrating a corporate website with an E-Learning platform, companies can build a single online portal where all their branding, training and commercial activities can be unified in a single, technologically enhanced online platform.
In the actual market, we see a large number of CMSs, but only a few of them are really supported and used by worldwide companies: these are WordPress and Joomla.
